As a conservative Mormon, I say: good.
Medical association opposes this bill on the grounds clinical trials don't
exist showing marijuana can help with seizures?There is more than
one way to skin a cat. In the worlds tradional medicines there were no clinical
trials. Yet over the centuries several societies reached great heights in their
medical knowledge. Practioners learned by experience and reason. The same way
people learn most everything in life.
As if the inter-mountain west doesn't have enough problems with suicide and
depression, they are going to allow a drug that increases the risk of suicide
and depression. Not only that but THC causes testicular cancer. Are we
willing to trade no seizures for suicide and testicular cancer and who knows
whatever else? Follow the money.

ThrillerSaint George, UTAs a conservative Mormon, I say: good.9:25 p.m. Feb. 21, 2014======= As a Liberal
Mormon, I say: good.And If you are going to use D&C 89 and
the Word of Wisdom to oppose this, You might want to re-read that sacred
scripture--89:10 And again, verily I say unto you, ALL wholesome
herbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man— 11 EVERY herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season
thereof; all these to be used with PRUDENCE and thanksgiving.FYI
:89:9 ...hot drinks are not for the body or belly.This
Hemp oil is safer and more in line with the Word of Wisdom than even Hot
Chocolate or Hot Cider.
While I don't oppose this bill, I still ask why we are wasting time on
it.There are already quite a few FDA approved medications that
contain CBD that are legal to buy in Utah. If that wasn't enough, I can go
to Amazon or other online retailers and order Hemp Oil (CBD) herbal
supplements.The question that I keep asking is why are we wasting
time legalizing something that seems to already be legal?
Redshirt1701Deep Space 9, UtThe question that I keep asking is
why are we wasting time legalizing something that seems to already be legal?12:36 p.m. Feb. 24, 2014======== Because by the
book, it's STILL illegal.Like when you ignore the Speed Limit,
Simply ignoring the laws of the land does make it "legal".That's why.I gave you a scripture Red, Why are
not responding?LovelyDeseretGilbert, AZIt doesn
have THC in it, read the article and the bill.It's safer
than Diet Coke.
Redshirt1701Deep Space 9, UtYou crack me up Red.You were the pin and spout "Libertarian" views non-stop daily, but when rubber hits the road, this clearly shows you are just a bunch
of talk.Be consistant, show some integrity, please.
To "LDS Liberal" go back and re-read my post. I said nothing about the
illegal forms of Marijuana. I said, what are they trying to legalize? I can
already buy CBD containing medications and herbal supplements legally in Utah.
What are they trying to legalize that isn't already legal?With
a prescription I can go and purchase Marinol, or other CBD containing drugs from
any Utah pharmacy. Why are we legalizing something that is already legal if the
goal is to allow parents to buy CBD containing medications?According
to the Standard Examiner article "Froerer's hemp extract bill appears
in the Legislature" it is already legal to buy hemp oils, lotions, and
supplements in Utah.So again, if it is already legal to buy FDA
approved CBD containing medications and herbal supplements in Utah, what is
being legalized here? You already have access to the CBD oils. What else do
you want to obtain through this bill?
